Addressing the protest leaders said it seems as if even children were not safe in Pakistan. They condemned the incident which has brought shame for humanity. They said the performance of Punjab police was on question mark as it was sleeping on the issue instead of taking immediate action and that it has so far not arrested killer despite CCTV shows a bearded man taking Zainab with him.
They also condemned Qasur police for direct firing on citizens protesting against murder of Zainab during which 2 citizens were killed. They said it was evident that Punjab government was attempting to mess up the matter by forming JIT which was a step to linger on the issue.
